In the wake of the clergy abuse scandal of the last decade, many media commentators predicted the “end” of the Catholic priesthood. Demands for an end to celibacy, coupled with calls for women’s ordination, dominated discussions on the effectiveness of the Catholic Church in America. Renewal argues that rather than a decline of the priesthood and a diminishing influence of the Catholic Church, we are living in a time of transformation and revitalization. The aging generation of progressives that continues to lobby Church leaders to change Catholic teachings on reproductive rights, same-sex marriage and women’s ordination is being replaced by younger men and women who are attracted to the Church because of the very timelessness of its teachings.

Praise for Renewal:

“This is an important snapshot of a beautiful counterculture, a recovering fatherhood. Renewal, indeed.”
— Kathryn Jean Lopez, Editor-at-large, National Review Online

“This book is real hope, without a hint of wishful thinking. I highly recommend Renewal.”
— Scott Hahn, Author, Rome Sweet Home
